Advantages of a CheckSafe X-ray Inspection System

CheckSafe X250:  Affordable X-ray inspection system

The most significant factors in the price of an X-ray based quality control instrument are the detector and X-ray generator. Unlike all the other X-ray systems producers, our roots are in the design, manufacture and optimisation of these key components. This enables us to greatly reduce the costs, so we can pass the savings on to our most valuable asset – our customer.

CheckSafe X400:  Powerful in X-ray inspection system

With CheckSafe X400, we expand our unique product line with a device that combines the benefits of CheckSafe X250 with a wider conveyor and a remarkably larger detection area. It is especially designed for the inspection of larger food products, trays of smaller products and the inspection of multiple lanes.
